Windows 10 V1607: Update KB4467684 kills Outlook search in Terminal Server

End of November 2018 Microsoft released the update KB4467684 for Windows 10 V1607 . Since then, there are more and more reports that this update killed the search in Outlook via Terminal Server.

Update KB4467684 has been released for Windows 10 V1607 on November 27, 2018. Since this version dropped out of mainstream support on April 10, 2018, only Windows 10 Enterprise and Education systems received the update. The same applies to the LTSC version of Windows 10 V1607. I’ve mentioned that within my blog post Patchday Windows 10-Updates (November 27, 2018).

With this update, Microsoft has rolled out numerous fixes for Windows 10 V1607, but has not closed any security gaps. The KB article mentions several known problems with the .NET framework, a hiccup when using end-user-defined characters (EUDC) in Windows functions, or a broken search in Windows Media Player.

There, too, several users confirm this problem in connection with a terminal server. Repairing Outlook or similar approaches do not help – one solution is to uninstall Update KB4467684.

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Windows Search]


A second solution suggested to fix the problem is to disable indexing in Outlook. This should be possible with the above reg file, which is to be imported with administrative privileges.
